The feeders are up and the birds are now not only eating our bird mixture but also munching on  apples and pears.birds 015 birds 016

Bird Food for the cups

We have used combinations of

popcorn, cereal, bird seed mixture and left over food scraps (bread and biscuits mainly)

MIXED up with dripping, peanut butter and even honey.

It’s hard to know yet what mixture is the most popular, but it’s clear that our invented mixtures are eaten way before the offerings of  just the plain biscuits or bread.
